Colton, Dean A.; Gao, Xiaohong; Harris, Deborah J.; Kolen, Michael J.; Martinovich-Barhite, Dara; Wang, Tianyou; Welch, Catherine J.
This collection consists of six papers, each dealing with some aspects of reliability and performance testing. Each paper has an abstract, and each contains its own references. Papers include: (1) "Using Reliabilities To Make Decisions" (Deborah J. Harris); (2) "Conditional Standard Errors, Reliability, and Decision Consistency Performance Levels Using Polytomous IRT" (item response theory) (Tianyou Wang, Michael J. Kolen, and Deborah J. Harris); (3) "Assessing the Reliability of Performance Level Scores Using Bootstrapping" (Dean A. Colton, Xiaohong Gao, and Michael J. Kolen); (4) "Evaluating Measurement Precision of Performance Assessment with Multiple Forms, Raters, and Tasks" (Xiaohong Gao and Dean A. Colton); (5) "Weights that Maximize Reliability under a Congeneric Model for Performance Assessment" (Tianyou Wang); and (6) "Reliability Issues and Possible Solutions" (Catherine J. Welch and Dara Martinovich-Barhite). (SLD)
